Sure, you asked a lot of questions today and yesterday William, but at least they were on topic.

More importantly though, I was disappointed to see our guiding principles violated today.

Sorry to hear you were bashed, but the Rain does hail occasionally, buy an umbrella and stick around.  Everything In Moderation Except Love. Try spreading it out over the week rather than all in one hour.

I don't really think that people were trying to 'bash' you, anymore than you were trying to annoy us by taking over the entire front page of the Q&A.  But I think you can see how it looked that way.

I'm glad to hear that wasn't your intent.

Not everyone looks to bash you. I liked some of your questions, they were fun to answer and share. You have to know, Some get annoyed if there are too many questions from any one person in a row as you see. Space them out, thats all. On another note, i like to live by if i have nothing good to say, i dont say anything.

Ask away and enjoy the adventure of people. I do think it's funny (and include myself in my generality) that folks get "grrrrrr" about too many questions or silly questions from students - there is no requirement to respond. If one doesn't want to spend time on another question from a student or look at someone's upteenth question of the day - skip it. That there is a negative reaction is interesting in a way.

Have a fantastic weekend.

William, I am glad you are here.  Your quality and quantity of questions are fine.  If a poster's questions take up a full page, why should anyone care? 


This is a forum of adults who know how to scroll to the next question.  Is there a rule about number of posts at one time? Those who sit on their high horse judging another's questions need to get over their judgment and entitlement. One day a poster may have lots of questions.  Do they post volumes everyday, of course not!!!

Those who criticize about number of posts should look within to find their real issues and stop projecting them onto members.  The rudeness you encountered is a turn-off to potential new members and existing members too!!  KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING.  Post Away William :))))). And Ryan Huggins has a practical idea about posting around a topic.

The definition of bash William Piotrowski...

verb
1. 
strike hard and violently.
"bash a mosquito with a newspaper"
synonyms: strikehitbeatthumpslapsmackbatterpoundpummelthrashrapbuffethammerbangknockMore
 
 
 noun
  1. 1. 
    a heavy blow.
    "a bash on the head"
    synonyms: blowraphitknockbangslapcrackthumptapclipMore
     

Not one response to your 'waterfall of questions' falls into the definition of bash. You have expressed your opinion freely as have many other members here in the Rain. Most gave you helpful advice from what I read, though there were a few snarky remarks. I wish you the best going forward!

William,

Like Michael Jacobs life creates lessons from which we learn. 

It is not about anyone bashing you, it is about what you attract with your queries. Some felt annoyed and some did not.  And if those who were annoyed could have moved on and not responded to your questions. No one does it to you or them, we always have a choice!

Wishing you continued success

Mainly you got the overflow of the dislike of the "robo posters" who will post a couple hundred market blogs a day and fill up the main page, suffocating other blogs.

 

Due to only getting points for one question per day, the common practice is to only post one a day.  Next time consider one post with multiple questions around a topic.  That goes over better here.

Simply put, you Over-Saturated the page just like market saturation!  "Market saturation is a situation that arises when the volume of a product or service in a marketplace has been maximized. At the point of saturation, a company can only achieve further growth through new product improvements, by taking existing market share from competitors."

Have you heard of the phrase "too much of a good thing?" LOL

Sorry you felt bashed. At first I wondered if somehow you had a backlog of questions inadvertently show at the same time. Then I thought maybe you had been hacked.

It seemed out of character to send so many questions at the same time- even though each of them showed merit. So... in the end this place is community driven and I'm glad you're still with us and I look forward to your continued participation.
